Cosmetic Dentistry for Your Smile

Make your smile beautiful with cosmetic dentistry. It is not your father’s dentistry. There are many ways to repair what is wrong with problem teeth in this day and age. Sitting with a mouthful of goo, for what seems like hours, is no longer necessary; a digital oral scanner has replaced that unpleasantness. Whitening is a known solution to dull-looking teeth, but there are many other options for improvement. Chips and dents can be filled, and implants are available to replace missing teeth.

It may sound like a futuristic ideal, but it is possible now to resolve tooth issues that seem unsurmountable to many people. Gum disease can erode soft tissue and cause odor, but laser dentistry eliminates the need for traditional surgery as it simultaneously kills bacteria and stimulates the regrowth of soft tissue. Lost, broken or worn teeth can be dealt with in several ways, and you can discuss which is best for you with your dentist. Teeth with chips and cracks, and gaps between teeth are more examples of impediments to a good smile that can be taken care of with little stress for you, and usually in one visit. It is important to find a good cosmetic dentist to fill a gap since it is done free hand to make it look natural and maintain functionality. This also eliminates the need for impressions and molds, a real plus.

Bonding is an application of tooth-colored composite material blended to match the color of your teeth during the process. There is also the option of a porcelain veneer, a tooth-like material applied to the surface of the tooth after a layer of enamel is removed to make room for the new layer. These procedures are permanent and immediately improve the appearance of your teeth.

Bridges are now bonded to neighboring teeth permanently and fill noticeable gaps. Crowns are caps for damaged teeth that allow you to keep your own teeth. Digital imaging will show you the intended results before the procedure. Find your own cosmetic solution and smile into the future.
